Make a Monetary Gift

With your help, students, their families, and others in the community can achieve a simple, yet often denied necessity: a personal, home computer of their own.

Your support is crucial in helping every student and community member gain the technology tools and training they need to bridge the digital divide. Every gift brings us one step closer to bridging the digital divide.

Donate a Computer

Give your old computer new life by donating it to Kramden. The computers we refurbish are awarded to students and adults across North Carolina that lack access to a home computer. All items that we cannot use in our program are properly recycled.

We accept desktops, laptops, keyboards, mice, LCD monitors regardless of age or condition as well as a number of other items.

Gifts of Appreciated Stock

Planned Giving

A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of an advisor, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift be made to Kramden Institute as part of your estate plan. Leave a lasting legacy!

Donor-Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund is a giving program that provides an immediate tax benefit to you and allows you to recommend grants to your favorite charities. DAFs can easily be set up through a community foundation or your financial institution.
